As a non-binary therapist with a BAME and LGBTQIA background, I specialised in LGBTQIA-focused & life/gender transitioning counselling.
Have you been struggling with sexuality, LGBTQIA identity, gender expression, and gender identity-related issues? Gender dysphoria and sexuality aren't psychological issues, however, they can still cause a lot of psychological stress and anxiety to a person. Or have you been struggling to fit into your workplace, local communities, or your social circle? Or might even have been unfairly treated or discriminated against because of your ethnic minority/BAME background? Unable to express your true self, true identity along with living in a society where misunderstanding and stigma can easily be found could greatly affect you

Do you feel ripped apart and shaken to your core? You don't want to be a burden to friends and can't talk to family, it is all so overwhelming. The deepest pit of despair and hurt, mixed emotions, anguish, anger, confusion, barely coping with intense non-stop life changes. Loss of family, partner or treasured friends, sudden or chronic terminal illness, loss of the person you used to be, ageing, guilty lifestyle, fear of a new job and moving, or the prickling heartache from loss of your pet. You don’t even have the strength to take the next step, to pull yourself through while trying to reach your old self. You need a safe space.

I am an integrative therapeutic counsellor/psychotherapist working with common mental health problems such as anxiety and depression. Mental health problems can be triggered in many ways. They can be a result of painful life events beyond our control, such as the breakdown of a relationship, or the death of a loved. They can translate in to feelings of guilt and shame, as well as overwhelming intrusive negative thought patterns. This can negatively effect how we perceive ourselves and the world around us effecting our self esteem. This can be difficult to manage without understanding and the right professional support.

I can provide you with a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment to slow down and take a look within. A place to reflect on and talk about your current situation alongside a thoughtful, empathic and experienced BACP registered counsellor. I believe that although we cannot change what has happened, it’s possible to see events differently; no longer being controlled by the past but instead using it as a means of understanding compassionately why the present might look or feel as it does. From here, together, we can explore how the future could be different for you.
